Another usecase that was presented on the list at some stage is town
centers that have more oneways than not (I think the example was in
Spain). In that context, oneway=no is usefull for mappers.

I'm sure that most foo=default_value tags are the result of
cluelessness/mishaps, but it's not always the case.
